Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the DEF position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Jared Allen is still the man in Minnesota, unfortunately for the Vikings Antoine Winfield was shown the door. There are holes all across the Minnesota defense and they do seem to have found a sparkplug in Harrison Smith, but he and Allen cant be everywhere at once. This defense has the potential to slide even further than the dip we're predicting and is one to avoid where possible.
